On August 28, 2014, Michael Waters celebrated his 25th year at OU Law as Editorial Advisor for the law reviews. OU Law boasts three law reviews: the Oklahoma Law Review, the American Indian Law Review, and Oklahoma Journal of Law and Technology. Michael’s role in all three is vital: he edits every article for each journal before it is published. To show their gratitude, students from all three journals gathered to honor his hard work and dedication to them for the past 25 years.
“He has worked countless hours for all the law reviews and he does not go unnoticed,” said third year law student Nicole Lynn.
The students surprised him with a cake and a signed OU Law seal. Michael said this is the first time anyone has thrown him a surprise party. The celebration will continue when Michael is honored at the yearend Law Review Banquet in the spring.

I was our family’s second generation to go to OU law school. We are now a five-generation family to do so. My dad and his identical twin brother, Ralph, were OU Law graduates, class of 1927. My grandfather, Dr. William Bennett Bizzell, was OU’s 5 th president. OU was a second home to me.
